Winnipeg Sun: Jets set the bar high. These guys believe in each other and think they have the group to make a post-season push this year.

Winnipeg Sun: Can’t wait to call Jets action. Just as excited as the fans and the players are, so too are the guys who get the pleasure of calling the game action.
